Title  Theory of Electrostatic Waves in Hyperbolic Metamaterials 
Author(s)  Moradi, Afshin 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XIII, 229 p. 92 illus., 88 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book covers electrostatic properties of hyperbolic metamaterials (HMMs), a fascinating class of metamaterials which combine dielectric and metal components. Due to the hyperbolic topology of the isofrequency surface in HMMs, the socalled resonance cone direction exists, and as a result, propagation of quasielectrostatic waves, or more commonly, electrostatic waves close to the resonance cone with large wave vectors, is possible. However, the investigation of electrostatic wave properties in HMMs is largely overlooked in most works on the subject, and the purpose of this monograph is to fill this gap. This book gives a thorough theoretical treatment of propagation, reflection, and refraction of electrostatic waves in HMMs of various dimensions and geometries. It will be of interest to students and researchers who work on electrical and optical properties of metamaterials

Title  Plasma Theory : An Advanced Guide for Graduate Students 
Author(s)  Rozhansky, Vladimir 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XI, 363 p. 108 illus., 11 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook, based on the author???s classroomtested lecture course, helps graduate students master the advanced plasma theory needed to unlock results at the forefront of current research. It is structured around a two semester course, beginning with kinetic theory and transport processes, while the second semester is devoted to plasma dynamics, including MHD theory, equilibrium, and stability. More advanced problems such as neoclassical theory, stochastization of the magnetic field lines, and edge plasma physics are also considered, and each chapter ends with an illustrative example which demonstrates a concrete application of the theory. The distinctive feature of this book is that, unlike most other advanced plasma science texts, phenomena in both low and high temperature plasma are considered simultaneously so that theory of slightly ionized and fully ionized plasmas is presented holistically. This book will therefore be ideal as a classroom text or selfstudy guide for a wide cohort of graduate students working in different areas like nuclear fusion, gas discharge physics, low temperature plasma applications, astrophysics, and more. It is also a useful reference for more seasoned researchers

Title  RadioFrequency Quadrupole Accelerators : From Protons to Uranium Ions 
Author(s)  Zhang, Chuan 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XXIII, 163 p. 150 illus., 144 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book guides readers into the realm of particle accelerators, which have served as indispensable tools for fundamental research, energy development, medical therapy, industrial applications, national security, etc., since 1924. Towards a new generation of high power proton and ion accelerators, challenges often come from space charge effects, which are most pronounced in lowvelocity beams. This book focuses on RadioFrequency Quadrupole (RFQ) accelerators, one of the most popular frontend structures for accelerator facilities, and their beam physics. Uncovering the limitations of the classic design methods, novel approaches to achieve efficient RFQ accelerators with high beam quality will be presented. In addition, new ideas for possible future developments, such as how to realize long RFQs with high performance and how RFQs can be applied for much higher beamvelocities to shorten largescale accelerators, will be introduced. To provide a general overview of the research and development of RFQs accelerating particle species from protons to uranium ions, this book uses over 10 real examples developed or proposed in the twentyfirst century for various facilities of different dimensions (from large scale e.g. a collider to small scale e.g. university experimental setups). With its rich content and comprehensive scope, this book is an invaluable reference for researchers and graduate students interested in RFQ accelerators and the intricacies of space charge physics in lowvelocity beams

Title  Facts of Matter and Light : Ten Physics Experiments that Shaped Our Understanding of Nature 
Author(s)  Maes, Christian 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XIII, 175 p. 41 illus., 31 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The main aim of this book is to shine a spotlight on key experiments and their crucial importance for advancing our understanding of physics. Physics is an empirical science, and experiments have always been a driving force in the development of our understanding of nature. Facts matter. In that sense, the book attempts to be complementary to the many popularizations of theoretical physics, and to counterbalance the frequent emphasis there on more speculative ideas. Experimental physics is also an essential pillar in physics teaching, as well as helping broader audiences to better understand important concepts, particularly in challenging fields such as relativity or quantum physics, where our common sense intuition often fails. Readers are taken on an historical journey, starting with ???Free Fall??? and culminating in ???Spooky Action at a Distance???. En route they will encounter many important branches of physics, whose main ideas and theoretical description will be given a more empirical meaning. At the end, the reader is invited to reflect on what could be exciting and important directions for fundamental physics. All readers with an undergraduate degree in physical sciences or engineering will enjoy and learn much from this stimulating and original text

Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XVI, 489 p. 407 illus., 232 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book describes the development of sources of negative ions and their application in science and industry. It describes the physical foundations and implementation of the key methods of negative ion production and control, such as charge exchange, thermionic emission, plasma volume, secondary emission (sputtering) and surfaceplasma sources, as well as the history of their development. Following on from this essential foundational material, the book goes on to explore transport of negative ion beams, and beamplasma instabilities. Now in its second edition, the book has been substantially expanded and updated to address the many developments since it was first published, most importantly the development and investigation of cesiated surfaces with work function ~1.21.3 eV in conditions close to discharges in surface plasma sources. The book also includes a new chapter on development of conversion targets for highenergy neutral beam injectors, covering gas targets, plasmatargets and photon targets for efficient conversion of high energy negative ion beams to neutral beams. With exposition accessible at the graduate level, and a comprehensive bibliography, this book will appeal to all students and researchers whose work concerns ion sources and their applications to accelerators, beam physics, storage rings, cyclotrons, and plasma traps

Title  Problems in Classical Electromagnetism : 203 Exercises with Solutions 
Author(s)  Macchi, Andrea;Moruzzi, Giovanni;Pegoraro, Francesco 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XVII, 581 p. 341 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This second edition adds 46 new problems, for a total of 203. The solutions to certain ???old??? problems have been revised for improved clarity, in response to questions and comments from our students (secondyear students in the Master???s in Physics program). Each problem is given a title indicating its relation to the various areas of physics or technology. By tackling the problems presented here, students are gently introduced to advanced topics such as unipolar and homopolar motors, magnetic monopoles, radiation pressure, angular momentum of light, bulk and surface plasmons, and radiation friction. We also address a number of tricky concepts and apparent ambiguities and paradoxes encountered in the classical theory of electromagnetism, with a particular focus on conservation laws and transformation properties between different frames of reference. At the same time, the book can be used as an introduction to applications of classical electromagnetism including cuttingedge topics like plasmonics, metamaterials, and lightdriven propulsion. While unnecessary mathematical complexity is avoided, the new edition also provides a few introductory examples concerning elegant and powerful solution techniques. Hopefully the second edition offers an even better teaching tool for undergraduates in physics, mathematics, and electric engineering, and a valuable reference guide for students planning to work in optics, material science, electronics, and plasma physics

Title  Problems of High Frequency Diffraction by Elongated Bodies 
Author(s)  Andronov, Ivan 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2023. 
Description  XII, 188 p. 43 illus., 6 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Classical asymptotic expansions, while producing a good approximation for the diffracted fields in general, appear hardly applicable in the case of extremely elongated bodies. Thus, there are problems that are on the one hand too difficult for numerical solvers due to large system size, and on the other hand make the description with classical asymptotic methods hard. The book explains why this happens and suggests the way out. By defining the characteristics of a strongly elongated body it introduces a special class of asymptotic approximations, which are in some sense uniform with respect to the rate of body elongation. Chapter 1 briefly describes the results of V. A. Fock and further developments of his approach towards the problems of diffraction by elongated obstacles. It formulates the cases of moderately and strongly elongated bodies. The rest of the book describes the approach of special parabolic equations, which lead to new asymptotic approximations for the diffracted fields. Chapters 2, 3 and 4 discuss diffraction by bodies of elliptical shape: The elliptic cylinder with a strongly elongated cross section and prolate spheroid with a high aspect ratio. Chapter 5 generalizes the approach to some other shapes such as narrow cones and narrow hyperboloids. Mathematical formulas for the Whittaker functions widely used in the book are collected in the Appendix. The concise derivations are supplied with numerous test examples that compare asymptotic approximations with numerically computed fields and clarify the specifics of high frequency diffraction by strongly elongated bodies. The reference solutions presented in the book enable one to validate the newly developed numerical solvers
